    A few from the Edenhope weekend, this ride consists of around 400km loop from Edenhope to Halls Gap via Zumstiens then onto the Victoria Valley Rd to
    Cavendish, Balmoral then into Harrow Pub for a late lunch before heading back into Edenhope.
    This year was down on numbers for the Saturday ride as a bit of rain scared a few coming from Adelaide on the Friday, they departed Adelaide Saturday
    morning meaning they missed the morning ride out of Edenhope.

    This is a shot on the Victoria Valley Rd.

    Good thing that did not end in disaster or hospital.
    Wonder if the design of that front fender contributed to scenario?
    Looking at the picture 2 shots up from this one on Mickles post the bottom of the fender is pretty close to the road which would increase the chances of that happening.

    was following a little way behind,didnt see anything on the road that might have caught up,but then again it may have been shot to the side when what ever it was [ if anything] left the bike. china was over the brow when we caught sight of him.

    That guard looks to be bloody close to the tyre.  At speed with a warm tyre expanding (even a little bit) the clearance would be too low.  Especially when the rear looks to have a good gap so anything suucked in would quickly run out of room as the tyre rotated and drove the object to the front of the guard....  He is lucky the guard let loose.
